Leading law firm Irwin Mitchell’s corporate team has helped an independent petroleum distributor to clinch a deal to provide fuel for London’s Black Cab drivers at Heathrow airport.

The team was sole adviser on the deal, which will see Mabanaft establish a fuel bunkering station in a special area provided by Heathrow’s owner, BAA.

Kevin Cunningham, who heads Irwin Mitchell’s corporate team in Yorkshire, said: “This is an innovative arrangement for supplying taxis with fuel at one of the busiest airports in the world.

“This is a fantastic development for all concerned, it opens up additional revenue streams for Mabanaft, while providing a quality and much needed fuel service at Heathrow for taxi drivers.”

Mark Rolph, managing director of Mabanaft, said: “We are delighted to have agreed this deal with BAA.

“We have worked with the Irwin Mitchell team on a number of occasions and they have a proven track record of helping us complete deals.”

Irwin Mitchell’s Corporate Team also led a delegation of leading professional services representatives on an international trade mission to India and advised on a global deal to acquire PPL Polyurethane Products Ltd by global industrial group Trelleborg.
